It’s a big league game for us.”

“It looked like we hadn’t played in a while,” North said. “We did not look good at either end of the court. It was three-week rust, for sure.”

In the first half, Frewsburg’s Cordell O’Brien had 13 points and had a hand in seven more points to keep the Bears in front.

“We knew O’Brien was tough coming in,” North said. “He had 13 points and most of his (five) assists were in the first half. We tried to play matchup zone and we didn’t do a very good job.”

During the third quarter, Westfield made just one field goal and was 7 of 15 from the charity stripe. Overall, the Wolverines were just 14 of 31 from the foul line.

O’Brien finished with a game-high 21 points while Brad Nelson and Caleb Caldwell each had 11. O’Brien also had eight rebounds while Quinn Conlan had nine.
